오늘의 표현은 in a mad rush입니다.

We’ll learn what today’s expression means, but first let’s start by listening to today’s conversation. 그럼 오늘의 대화를 들어보면서 ‘in a mad rush’가 무슨 뜻인지 알아보겠습니다. 잘 들어보세요. Listen carefully.

In a mad rush
Jen: Why are you huffing and puffing?
Jason: Well, it’s because I was in a mad rush to get to the bank on time to deposit my cash. Plus, the bank was about to close soon.
Jen: Ah I see.

본문에서 제가 Jason 에게 묻습니다. “Why are you huffing and puffing? 왜 그렇게 숨을 헐떡이니?”. 그러자 Jason이 답하는데요. “Well, it’s because I was in a mad rush to get to the bank on time to deposit my cash. Plus, the bank was about to close soon. 은행에 현금을 입금하려고 굉장히 서둘렀거든. 은행 문 닫을 시간이 얼마 안 남아서 말이야.”라고요. 그러자 저도 “Ah, I see. 그래서 그랬구나.” 라고 말합니다.

Now keep today’s expression ‘in a mad rush’ in mind and let’s hear the conversation again. 그럼 다시 한번 대화를 들어볼까요?

In a mad rush
Jen: Why are you huffing and puffing?
Jason: Well, it’s because I was in a mad rush to get to the bank on time to deposit my cash. Plus, the bank was about to close soon.
Jen: Ah I see.

Today’s expression is in a mad rush. This expression is used when you are in a wild hurry.

In a mad rush에서 'mad'는 '미친', 'rush'는 '서두르다'는 뜻입니다. 그래서 'In a mad rush'라고 하면, 너무나 급해서 '미친 듯이 서두르다'거나 '급하게 몰려들다'는 뜻입니다. 정말 정신 없이 서두르는 급한 상황에 쓰는 표현이죠.

오늘 본문에서 Jason이 급하게 은행에 다녀온 모양입니다. 제가Jason에게 왜 그렇게 숨을 헐떡거리냐고 묻자, Jason은 은행 문이 닫기 전에 현금을 입금하기 위해서였다고 설명합니다. “Well, it’s because I was in a mad rush to get to the bank on time to deposit my cash. Plus, the bank was about to close soon.”라고요. 이렇게 엄청 서두를 때 쓸 수 있는 표현이 바로 ‘in a mad rush’입니다.

Now let me give you some example sentences using today’s expression. “Why is Paul always in a mad rush?”는 “왜 Paul은 항상 미친 듯이 서두르고 있지?"라는 뜻입니다. Here is another example sentence. “The shoppers get in a mad rush to purchase the sale items.”라고 하면 "고객들이 할인 상품을 사려고 광적으로 몰려든다.” 라고 해석할 수 있습니다. In a mad rush, 이 표현 잘 기억하시고요. 오늘의 대화를 마지막으로 들어보겠습니다. Now that you know what today’s expression means, let’s listen to the conversation for the last time.

In a mad rush
Jen: Why are you huffing and puffing?
Jason: Well, it’s because I was in a mad rush to get to the bank on time to deposit my cash. Plus, the bank was about to close soon.

Let’s review what we have learned today. When you are in a mad rush, you are in a wild hurry. IN A MAD RUSH. Now try using this expression on your own. 지금까지 ENGLISH WITH YOO에 Jennifer Yoo입니다. Until next time, bye bye!
